Save the date! NEFERTITI WEBINAR ‘Public policies supporting Demo Farms: expectations and potentials’

posted in: Latest news | 0

NEFERTITI webinar “Public policies supporting Demo Farms: expectations and potentials” will be held on March 15th, 2021, from 14.00 to 16.00 (CET), ONLINE!

Taking stock of the NEFERTITI project experience with Demo Farm activities, the webinar is aimed at understanding how public policies can improve the role of DEMO Farms in AKIS and their peer-to-peer learning potential.

The new European Union programming period and, particularly, the new CAP can shape new approaches to the strategic role of Demonstration activities and farms, with National and Regional Governments playing a crucial role in adopting the most favourable policy framework.

By sharing their knowledge and perspectives, participants will help NEFERTITI project to set up a survey and carry out relevant analysis and policy recommendations, which will be delivered in September 2021.
